Photographer's Note

Dartmoor, an upland area in South Devon.
The moorland and surrounding land has been protected by National Park status since 1951.
It covers 954 sq.kms/ 368 sq.miles.

It includes the largest area of granite in Britain with about 625 sq.kms/ 241 sq.miles at the surface.

Dartmoor is known for its tors - hills topped with outcrops of bedrock, which in granite country such as this are usually rounded boulder like formations.

More than 160 of the hills have the word 'tor' in their name, but quite a number do not.

We have had so much rain that the rivers and streams were rushing down from the hills. This is a tributary of the River Plym. Brown in colour, the water passes over peat rich land.

Taken with my iPhone.

Two more shots in the w/s.
Thanks for looking.
